Neuschwanstein Castle Tour – Real Life Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle
Ahhh you guys.
I’ve been so excited to share this post with you ?
SO during our trip to Germany, one of the places we really wanted to visit was Neuschwanstein Castle.
In all honesty, I didn’t know too much about the place but after doing some research I fell in love with the look of it ? I mean, real life Disney castle. Hello! It’s said that Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle is based on Neuschwanstein Castle. You can totally see where when you arrive. I’m so there!
Neuschwanstein Castle was the home of King Ludwig so many years ago. The whole area was owned by King Ludwig including the lake. You just have to see the views to take it all in, to see how amazing it is.
How To Get To Neuschwanstein Castle
Neuschwanstein Castle is situated in Bavaria, 1 hour 45 or so from Munich itself. We personally booked onto one of the local tours since we didn’t do a car hire on this trip. We got the train as part of the tour, from Munich Central train station to Fussen and then we grabbed a bus from there. The views are pretty awesome in my opinion! The village – Marienbrücke – is totally gorgeous!
How Long Does The Tour Last?
The tour itself lasts maybe an hour or so if I recall right, you get to walk around the castle and see the views from the castle.
Guys, it’s unreal.
Yes it’s super touristy but some things just have to be experienced in person don’t they?
How Long Should I Set Aside To Visit Neuschwanstein Castle?
A day is fine for this – Unless you have a car in which case you can do stop off’s inbetween at your own pace and see more of the area!
I’m going to leave you with some photo inspiration from the visit!
